Just a quickie.

Found my radiator is dripping slightly. Would Radweld be a good temporary solution or should I find a new radiator and replace it?

I've read horror stories about Radweld blocking up systems and blowing out engines.

Thanks all.

It's ok as a temporary fix. I'd use a flush when you change the radiator though.

I've heard that K-Seal is a better product but I haven't tried it myself.
